Where did you hear/read this? It seems, to me, quite unlikely that mosquito eggs would survive the journey in a tire shipment from Asia to Europe. And, even if they did, that the eggs themselves are carriers of parasites and viruses. Eggs are not larvae which are not adults. I have been under the impression that it is only adult female mosquitoes that become carriers by taking blood from carrier mammals and transferring the virus or parasite to subsequent hosts including humans. Is this not the case?fuki wrote: ↑Sun Jun 21, 2020 5:03 pmMosquitos here don't carry that, though every now and then a few cases/sightings are recorded, in this county/muncipilaty-thingy too.They come here due to tire import mainly from Asia, ofcourse we somehow need cheap/used tires here and the companies just leave the tires outside in the rain where the eggs can hatch, eventhough there's a law against that, but companies don't care for cleaning eggs from tires, costs money, and the government despite the law don't check if the laws are being kept, because...that costs money too. And with climate change more and more cases are reported, so it won't be long until we have all those virus thingies here too. Which like covid 19 will cost a lot of money, much more then actually 'preventing' it now.
I agree with you about the money trail. All manner of fundamental oversight is neglected because of a shortsighted appreciation of cost.
